International Women’s Day is a celebration of women and girls around the world.
Each year, the campaign shines a light on various issues that can disproportionately affect women and girls. The intention is to help create a fairer and more inclusive society for everyone.
International Women’s Day takes place on the 8th March every year.
This years celebration takes place on Friday 8th March 2024.
The IWD campaign has a theme each year. This helps give the celebrations and awareness direction and purpose.
In 2024, the theme is #InspireInclusion.
The idea behind this theme is that by understanding and valuing inclusion for women and girls, we create a more positive world for everyone.
This year, we’ve chosen to focus on the idea of inequalities in medical settings for women.
Did you know that 84% of women in the UK have reported not being listened to by a medical professional?
Our free downloadable poster highlights this issue, and offers more information common medical conditions for women and girls. Additionally, the NHS link (via QR code) gives information on further support available.
